We have Ruby, Lily & Daisy. L&D are twins.

Our 4th, if a girl, we have Poppy picked out. I love it but am wondering if 3 flower names is too much? Will it look odd that Ruby doesn't have a flwoer name?

Ruby isn't a flower, but it has the same feel because it's a naturally occurring word name. I personally wouldn't use another flower name, because I kind of like the twins being set apart, but a lot of people think the opposite of me regarding twins. *shrug* But really, it's not a BAD thing to do, I just have name OCD.

I think MomMomMom is right. Ruby has the same feel. I much prefer Ellie with your girls names and that way, the twins have their own theme.

I like Poppy with your set since they are all word names. I think that its ok if Ruby isn't a flower name and still fits in just fine!

I agree. I really like Ellie with your other children's names. The only thing to think about is that all 3 of your other daughters names end in 'y' and Ellie has an 'ie' so it wouldn't match - not that it really matters but if you cared. I think I have a bit of the OCD going on too

I love both your name choices, but I think I would go with Ellie. I think either name also goes well with your sibset.

I prefer Poppy. Ellie/Ella is everywhere and I think your other kiddos names are a little less common as is Poppy.

I think Ellie and Lily are too close in sound. And, Ellie doesn't fit the sibset as well because it's non-nature based like the other 3 girls. I'd definitely go with Poppy!

I vote for Ellie because I wouldn't want Ruby to feel left out.

Poppy. Would be neat if you guys fell in love with another nature name so the twins could stay the flower girls though. Ruby and Savannah would be sweet.

I prefer Ellie (more as a nickname) so that the names aren't too themey.

Poppy, because it ends in Y like the other girls, and it's a "word name" like the other girls.

I like them both. Ellie because I like the twins being flowers but Poppy because it has a closer feel I think Ellie is too much more popular for the reast of the sib set.
